Use Slack to:
• Communicate with your team and organize your conversations by topics, projects, or anything else that matters to your work
• Message or call any person or group within your team
• Share and edit documents and collaborate with the right people all in Slack
• Integrate into your workflow, the tools and services you already use including Google Drive, Salesforce, Dropbox, Asana, Twitter, Zendesk, and more
• Easily search a central knowledge base that automatically indexes and archives your team’s past conversations and files
• Customize your notifications so you stay focused on what matters

Scientifically proven (or at least rumored) to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. We hope you’ll give Slack a try.

Release Notes:

• Previously in Slack app releases: we fixed the Japanese input in 2.6.3. Then we re-broke it in 2.8.0. And now it’s fixed again. Stay tuned for the next thrilling installment.
• Added bonus: An Electron update improving security. A precautionary measure, but it’s always good to be up to date.

Life-changing for teams - We’ve tried everything. Skype. iMessages. Dropbox documents. Trello. HipChat. You name it. Everything. Slack is the first application we’ve used that actually works the way we want, as a team of creative people (slaes, marketing, video creators and developers). We can paste text snippets, add links, attach files, create new channels (and invite members into them). The desktop app, web app and the iOS app work perfectly together for when we are at our desks or on-the-go. Slack is amazing. I cannot imagine going back to anything else. If you have a team of people who actually need to communicate in a meaningful way, forget everything else, this is the solution.

Review by fivekan

Hybrid Crap - This is nothing more than their website wrapped in an app chrome. This is not a native app and therefore it exhibits all the horrible behavior of a web site. Weird, sticky menus, non-standard shortcuts, lack of integration with system services, etc. Get serious and create a proper native app.

Yo! can you not write your application in electron? - I get it, electron is magical for whomever is programming. It’s a total ball of dirty lard for anyone who uses a laptop. My battery life goes from 10+ hours on a full charge, to under 4 when I open slack. For now I’ve resorted to just using slack in the browser, but it would be nice to have it as its own system app, as long as it doesn’t pound my battery life a sailor in port after being on the sea for 6 months.

Review by jenniferkvelez

Horrible on mac - This app has so much potential. I rely on it for work, yet it never seems to work for me as it should. I depend on my mac for gestures. I love swiping between full screen pages because that’s what a mac can do! That’s what a mac supports! You never need to compromise on screen real estate for any of your apps. And Slack for me needs to be full screen, so I can follow long threads at work, so I can see large images, so I lose none of it! When I open a document while in fullscreen, and then attempt to exit the document and return to my conversation or channel, it always manages to turn black. I am unable to close the application, minimize it, nothing. I have to force quit the app every time. Please please please fix this.
